Indians do not use trumpets, but instead of a trumpet they have whips, which they sound off into the air, and drums, raising an awful booming from themselves.
Greek Original:
Σάλπιγξ. σάλπιγξιν Ἰνδοὶ οὐ χρῶνται, ἀλλ' ἀντὶ σάλπιγγος αὐτοῖς εἰσὶν αἱ μάστιγες, ἃς ἀποκτυποῦσιν εἰς τὸν ἀέρα, καὶ τύμπανα, φρικώδη τινὰ βόμβον ἐξ ἑαυτῶν ἀνιέντα.
